Whether you own one of the Palos Verdes homes in any of the cities of the Palos Verdes Peninsula [Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes or the incorporated part of Palos Verdes] or own any of the homes in the Beach Cities [Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Torrance], having seller tips available to help you maximize your interests when you go to choose a broker and start marketing your homes, is vitally important to you.
Seller tips can be categorized in these main areas:
- What’s my home worth?
- What are the qualifications of a real estate broker that I should pay attention to when choosing a real estate agent?
- What are the supply demand trends for homes like mine and how will that affect the pricing of my home?
- What are some pricing strategies that I should consider when listing my home for sale?
These are just some of the questions that having the answers to, will help you not only get your home sold, but …
- get it sold expeditiously and efficiently,
- with less stress to you and
- for the highest market price.
When it comes right down to it, those Seller Tips three goals are all important to you aren’t they?
There’s a great deal of overlap in accomplishing these goals, but sometimes it’s just not possible to reach 100% for each. Sometimes selling the property for the highest market price as the foremost goal means not having as much of a “stress-less” transaction. For example, one way to achieve the highest market price is to make sure your property is available to be shown at any time by any QUALIFIED buyer when they want to see it. That date and time may not be convenient for you and that may cause stress. Being realistic then while my job as your marketing broker is to make sure these goals are satisfied, it’s also important in my serving a fiduciary duty to you, that we have a conversation before I begin marketing to learn which of these three goals are most important to you.
So probably of all the seller tips I can help you with, the first one is to just have a conversation with you so that I can learn more what’s important to you and what your concerns are about selling your home as well as what your expectations are during the entire process from signing a listing agreement to closing escrow and receiving the funds from the sale of your home so that you can get on to doing what you want in the time you want. Doesn’t that make sense?
Homework for getting started with benefiting from these Seller Tips:
Here’s what I recommend. Take out a piece of paper and pencil – yes, old school, not on your ipad or iphone or computer, and jot down the three goals numbered above. Talk to your spouse or whomever you own the property with and talk about these goals. What’s really most important to you and why. What additional information do you need in order to rank the goals? Bring your notes with you and let’s meet at my office. Many times my selling clients will sit down in our “family room” styled office area so that I can plug my laptop into the big TV screen and we can start virtual touring the competitive sales and active listings, I can point out supply demand trends, go over time lines and help set reasonable expectations.
